Play-off contenders Fleetwood and Bradford shared the spoils in an entertaining draw at Highbury.

Alan Goodall headed the Cod Army in front from Gareth Evans's corner, but the Capital One Cup finalists levelled through Nahki Wells's free-kick.

The visitors then took the lead when Will Atkinson's long ball was fired home by Ryan Dickson.

However Bantams forward James Hanson handled in the area, allowing John Parkin to equalise from the spot.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"We deserved to be more than 1-0 up when we conceded the equaliser just before half time. With a bit more clinical finishing, we could have been 2-0 up.

"A lack of concentration enabled Bradford to get back into the game. If you switch off for five seconds, you can get punished.

"We gave another poor goal away, which put us on the back foot, but the lads came back really strong.

"That's the biggest positive - to come back from 2-1 down against a team that's doing well."
